As usual, we turn to the scriptures, God’s words, to provide the answer.

Here are five Bible verses that prove that praying is truly the key.

1 Chronicles 16:11

“Look to the LORD and his strength; seek his face always.”

Jeremiah 33:3

“Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.”

Philippians 4:6

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”
